I will stop taking aromasin in August at the end of 3 years--- took tamoxifen for 2 years before that. Will I experience any changes? I am 62 years old.
What is the effect of stopping aromasin?

I am a breast cancer 4th stage patent at the Johannesburg public hospital for the past 9 years.
I want to know, after taking tamoxifen for approx 7 years, I discovered I had lung, liver and womb.
Only by having an anagram (blood and mammograms regular tests where useless)
Only found this when my heart was irregular. Even though I had complained for ever that i was tired and no energy (I don't think I had side affects with tamoxifen but it did not prevent me getting more cancer) once I was diagnosed. chemo therapy then on to Accord Anastrozole which I have the worst side effect joint/bone/muscle pain/ extreme tiredness/ trouble sleeping.
So I now have been changed to Amomasin with the same side affects.
So my question is what is the better medication?
Aromasin will not work if one stops taking the med, however your oncologist is a better person to advice so, as he knows your medical history well, hope this helps?.
Patricia Ganz, M.D.: There are no known side effects of stopping this medication. You may notice some benefits if you were having side effects.
Hi , well to be honest after taking it for 3 years I think you should ask your Doctor what are the effects of stop using this med for so long.
